YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Ridgefield police officer stopped a car involved in a hit-and-run in Ridgefield Park and found twin brothers and a passenger carrying four decks of heroin, authorities said.

Officer Greg Anastassatos pursued the 2014 Honda Accord after the driver — identified as Yosef Taha, 20, of Elmwood Park — blew a red light turning onto southbound Broad Avenue from Shaler Boulevard, Capt. Richard Besser said.

Anastassatos moments earlier heard the Ridgefield Park alert involving a crash on Bergen Turnpike moments earlier, Besser said.

The Honda finally came to a stop on Sedore Avenue in Fairview, the captain said.

Taha was charged with eluding police.

He, his brother, Yazan, and 20-year-old Ryan Andreano of Cliffside Park were charged with heroin possession.

The Taha twins were being held on $10,000 bail each, and Andreano on $2,5,00, in the Bergen County Jail.
